2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap @ Justisen, Oslo. The bottle version has been available for 149 years so far. Now sadly retired. The owners (Carlsberg) have replaced Frydenlund Pilsener in the stores with their poor canned Norwegian version of Grøn Tuborg. Shame on them! Frydenlund Pilsener is fortunatly still available (for a while) on tap in some Oslo pubs. Pours clear pale golden. Dense, mostly lasting white head. Nice lacing. Slight hoppy aroma, also sweetish grain and yeast. Weak, but well rounded malt flavors. Medium body. Short bitter/sweet finish.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
330 ml bottle. Average white head which subsides quickly leaving the beer transparent. Medium carbonation level. Fruity aroma, which I believe is from their proprietary yeast. Noble hop aroma. Gentle hop bitterness and smooth malt perception. Well balanced.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Coarse lace above somewhat creamy, white, medium-sized head. Clear
copper body. Aroma is standard Ringnes caramel malts with some butter.
Taste is buttery caramel with skunked hops (from a can!). Some
bitterness, but no proper aftertaste. This is very, very poor. Has to
be one of the worst pilseners I’ve had. Ringnes must really hate the
memory of Frydenlund.
